Our own efforts are associated with religion and homocentrism (Rom 8:6-8).
God accepted Abel’s sacrifice, for he understood
the revelation of God (who is before eternity) (Eph 3:9).
God is pleased only through His Son.
Our faith
is about obeying God’s revelation.
We must understand what He loves (Rom 12:2)
and what He is pleased with.
Everything besides this is religion and human conviction.
should accept God’s love,
but we must come into Jesus Christ to do so (Phi 2:10-11).
should become people who God is pleased with,
but it must be through Jesus Christ (Jn 10:9).

◎ Even if we live under Moses, the Law and the Prophets,
we cannot receive God’s love or please Him.

◎ We must dwell in Jesus
to accept God’s love and become people who please Him.

◎ We can come into Jesus Christ and please Him
by being baptized.

※ Understand God’s love and pleasure
like He personally revealed from heaven.
We are complete only when we unite with Jesus Christ.
